Quick and Easy Valentine's Beef Stew


  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)

  • 1 carrot, peeled and shredded

  • 1 celery stalk, finely chopped

  • 1/4 pound ground beef

  • 1/4 cup tomato sauce*

  • 1/4 cup frozen peas

  • 1/4 cup chicken broth or water


In a medium size skillet, heat the EVOO over medium heat. Add the carrot and celery and cook until slightly softened, about 5 minutes. Add the ground beef and cook, breaking up with a wooden spoon, until browned, about 5 minutes. Stir in the tomato sauce, peas and chicken broth and continue cooking until warmed through, about 3 minutes.

*Do not use tomato sauce containing onions or garlic, which can be toxic to cats and dogs.
